How true. Those are good, perceptive questions.

Hi Udge! Thanks for commenting - it's great to see you here!

This is great stuff and really made me think. What a good journalist he's going to make. Chastening that it is so rare to read this perspective. It's especially striking to read such criticisms and pity for our way of life in comparison with theirs from someone not just from a poorer, developing country, but one we associate so strongly with absolute horrors, isn't it?

Who was Cassandra?

  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.
